Can someone please tell me step by step instructions on how to view my ministering assignments on whom I am assigned to minister and who is assigned to minister to me? On both LDS.org and LDS Tools. Thanks in advance.

It's not available on lds.org. At least not to the general membership.

For LDS Tools, you must be on 3.5. That requires that your device be on Android 5 or iOS 10 or later.

I am using iOS 11.2.6. And still cannot find who I minister to and who minister to me (RS) or my family (Priesthood). Another ironic thing... I am the RS Ministering Secretary and can access a list of all assignments through the Clerk and Leader Resources “Ministering” link. The VT and HT assignments prior to Aug 1 were accessed through the Directory by person (VT/HT) or family (HT).

There are some updates coming to LDS Tools to help with some of these issues.

I just figured out that I was not running 3.5. I updated on August 1, but it looks like the update was released on Aug 2 (14 Days ago). I am good now. I will have the RS and Priesthood Quorums in my Stake get the word out. Thanks for your help!!!

I am using 3.5 but still cannot see my assignments. Could there's be a configuration issue with my stake/ward?

If you are signed in, it is more likely a software issue that is being worked at headquarters. It generally works (but not always) for Android users. iOS is having more problems. scgallafent said a few posts ago that there are some updates coming to LDS Tools to help with some of these issues.

So, can someone post step-by-step for lds_tools app? Isn't that what was asked for?

In the Directory In LDS Tools, select your name.
In the blue ribbon under your photograph click on Ministering.
The blue ribbon will slide left and right if needed.

I appreciate the additional information. Without knowing about the app update (3.5) the requested step by step would have really frustrated me.
